I have three girls and five boys, I have them in big cages next to each other, as I haven’t got a lot of room to put the cages in different places. The boys I have issues with... Jackson, the original (bought on his own because he was the only one left) was lonely, so instead of buying another companion, I ended up buying four more; as you do. I intergrated them, and everything was fine, until Junior, the smallest and most timid, was being picked on, and making a lot of racket at night. So I dug the smaller cage out and popped him in there for a time, right next to the boys, to chill out. Then, Pumpkin (my Russian Topaz) was being excluded, as Jackson (the original), Todd and Max (the twins) had formed a clique, in their hammock, and wasn’t letting him in. So I swapped Pumpkin and Junior around to see if that made any difference. Now the racket has started up again, Pumpkin looks depressed, and has ripped apart a woven net hammock, in the smaller cage, and Junior (as he’s grown a bit bigger now, from being by himself, and able to eat and grow) is picking on the placid Jackson, making him scramble all over he place to get away from the little monster. I don’t know what to do, shall I leave all of them in the one big cage, let them get on with it and where earplugs, or what?
